Hong Kong's start-up ecosystem has been thriving in recent years. The growing policy support from the Government has facilitated the development of new industries, including biotechnology, in the city. At the same time, biotechnology is one of the key technologies being developed in the Mainland, and the demand for such new technologies is expected to develop rapidly across China.
Recognizing Hong Kong's advantages in location, capital and medical technology, Dr Ricky Chiu established the headquarters of PHASE Scientific here in 2017 to best capture the huge Mainland market, after obtaining funding from the U.S. government.
Chiu believes that the popularity of rapid point-of-care diagnostics will change people's attitudes towards self-care management. Many diseases can be prevented if diagnosed early enough, which will reduce the burden on the healthcare system.
To learn more about the secrets of PHASE Scientific's success, the Chamber is arranging a company visit with the opportunity to meet Dr Chiu on 22 November. Limited places are available, so don't miss out!
